I just had surgery, dental surgery that is! Yes, I know I have horrible dental hygiene. It was done at Tufts Medical Center in Boston and it was horrendous. The pain was just excrutiating. Just kidding it felt like a long cavity filling. The dentist who worked on my tooth injected two shots of the good ole novacaine but I found out novacaine is no longer used because it causes allergic reaction so they use other "caines" now. Other than that I almost fell asleep while he was drilling into my teeth, it was very pleasant. So if your getting a root canal in the near future, don't be scared, you heard it from me. Scratch that, take care of your teeth and don't be like me, brush three times a day and after meals.
